the danger of dApp?

In response to MetaMask stated that he is not trying to censor but only to protect customers from probable threats. However, the company added that it will conduct with their employees advice about avoiding such situations in the future. The platform also adds the ability to choose whether or not to work with each specific decentralized application or not.

Possibly adopted by the company security measures are quite justified, and she was just trying to protect their users. But the point of cryptocurrencies is that their users can freely decide how to use their money — regardless of whether good or no this or that project.

This is not the first dApp, which is a threat not only to community network, but also for the project itself. Previously decentralized Fomo3D app, which the developers decided to play on the greed of the users, 180 thousand coins.

The Game is a kind of lottery every day it shapes the jackpot for the user who places the last bid. With each new bid the counter is reset to zero.

The Problem was that at the peak of popularity game counter would be reset too often — approximately every 10 minutes. This could cause in the hands of developers would have the vast majority of coins and they could influence the course of bitcoin. However, in August the first round of the game , and the winner has hit the jackpot in the amount of $ 2.9 million. After that, the popularity Fomo3D decreased.
